The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is holding it’s monthly virtual networking meeting for entrepreneurs with any form of disability or health issues, on 26 October 2022.

Designed to be friendly, supportive and productive, this is a regular opportunity to bring together business owners with any form of physical or mental health issues to network together, advise each other and build up contacts across the whole of the UK.

The monthly online networking session will feature a short 10 minute talk by a speaker with a health issue – or someone who is an advocate for those with a disability – before attendees go into breakout rooms to network with one another in a friendly and supportive environment.

This month’s speaker is Aled Powell from RedArc, providers of FSB Care.

Aled has 30 years experience working in many areas of financial services, retail banking, lending, insurance and debt management in both customer facing and operational roles. In 2016 he moved away from financial services and joined FSB Care service provider RedArc as operations manager. In his opinion the best career move he has ever made. Whilst no longer helping members himself he gets a great deal of satisfaction from seeing and hearing how members have benefited from having access to a personal nurse.

These virtual networking meetings are part of the FSB’s ongoing Business Without Barriers campaign which aims to encourage inclusive, supportive workplaces and offer advice for the country’s army of disabled entrepreneurs.

This free #FSBConnectOnline networking event is open to all businesses – both FSB members and non-members are welcome to attend, so please feel free to share with your networks.
